Large parts of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area have been placed under a frost advisory as colder weather begins to set in.

Environment Canada issued a frost advisory Sunday morning, saying temperatures could drop overnight into Monday morning.

“Cover up plants, especially those in frost-prone areas,” the weather agency said. “Take preventative measures to protect frost-sensitive plants and trees.”

Areas around St. Catharines, Niagara Falls and Welland were also under a similar advisory.
